Peel Ports Group extends steel terminal
19 October 2023
THE PORT operator started construction of the 20,000 sq ft extended warehouse at its North 3 Canada Dock earlier this year.
An initial 8,000 square foot of the newly created warehouse space is already in use, with a second phase of construction work to build an extra 12,000 square foot of the terminal ongoing and will be completed in December.
The site now has 280,000 square foot of internal storage, as well as 100,000 square foot of external footage. It also has a total throughput capacity of in excess of 600,000 tonnes annually.
The facility was once the UK’s first fully-automated steel terminal following a £9m upgrade in 2016.
